    Easy solution….The range has been there for 56 years and decades before any houses were built. To the homeowners, don’t like it? MOVE! You either bought  or built knowing the range is there. TOO BAD!

      Agreed,
      Unfortunately flatties with money and influence think they can buy their way to anything they want.

         You’ve got that right.

      you sound very angry…the article made it sound as though everyone was looking for a peaceful solution. Why so angry?

    I grew up on Sawyer Rd in Cape Elizabeth and remember going to this range with my Dad, 40 years ago.  All of the members then were true sportsman and safety was the number one concern.  These types of ranges don’t exist everywhere.  It would be a shame to see a place like this disappear all because somebody new moves into the neighborhood.   I truly hope resolution can be reached so they can continue.  Maybe instead of being against the club, they should join and support them and their membership could help with the improvements.

    This is similar to individuals that buy a property close to an airport and then complain about the noise from “all those airplanes!”

    It only takes one anti-gun person (with money) and the assistance of the all-too-helpful media to create a problem.  Perhaps we in Maine should start a fund to pay moving expenses to Massachusetts for such people!

    This is one reason why I voted for Angus King (and not Dill)

    Just guessing that perhaps more adjacent cars, homes and glass windows are hit each year by golf balls than bullets or pellets. While golf balls seldom kill a person, the high priced homes are right next to the fairways. Nobody has been hit by a bullet in CE… Id take my chances being a neighbor there as opposed to being next to the CC.

    Maybe we should just make Cape Elizabeth a National Park….we could outlaw guns, and bring in all sorts of jobs, and protect the environment…think how great that be! The people who live there wouldn’t care, Im sure…..

    So “a lawyer representing a client in the neighborhood” attends council meetings? That’s double-barreled trouble right there, and probably a dead giveaway that the “neighbor” is from away. If the neighbor can’t be bothered to attend his or her own town meeting, then they should put up and shut up.

      The neighbors’ lawyer, Jamie Wagner, who is also a candidate for Town Council. Talk about someone with an axe to grind….

    Im sure the gun club which has been operating safely for 56 years
    is interested in  safety as well as the next person.
      And also addressing other concerns as they present themselves.
      Great bunch.

     Where do I get an application to join this fine organization??
